We conclude our Deadshot issues with, The Rising Sun. Bruce gets help from his World War II castaways to take Deadshot down using the wilderness to his advantage. In the end of it all – Lucius is the one to contact Alfred and therein salvage a rescue mission. While everyone boards to head home, the two castaways choose to remain – Bruce complies and drops off supplies in the Batwing at a later point in time.
The last few issues have foreshadowed a Mr. Freeze storyline and it looks like the next issue will finally have the payoff we’ve been looking for. Nora Fries resurrection looks to be Freeze’s objective – we’ll see how that plays out.
This Deadshot arc had a feeling of filler for the majority – given that Deadshot is played off as a two-bit thug and not all that intelligent for the majority of the run. However, our World War II castaway ties had some tight story building – unfortunate that they’ll be abandoned for the foreseeable future.
Bruce goes all out embracing the surroundings to get back into his Batman aesthetic. Some great moments facing off Deadshot that really bring you into the action, shine this issue.
How fitting that an average ending is found for an an average run that had the possibility to really shine brighter.
